i did get an adapter to run my lights, i learned the hard way about low voltage, when i had my camper, i used an adapter and did run the a/c, before long i burned out my converter, cost me almost 500 to replace it. so all i run is lights when im plugged in now. i am installing a 30 amp plug so that i can run it all.

My older Coleman a/c unit on my '87 MH will run on a 15 amp circuit IF it has a slow blow fuse in it. My 2005 Kodiak TT had an a/c unit that used over 27 amps to start it and about 20 to 22 amps to run it.
If you have a voltmeter or an amp meter you can make sure you are getting enough power to the unit. If the power is too low the compressor may run but can get hot. Kinda like driving your car in top gear at 25 mph and trying to accelerate. Might do it but not good for it.
The MH is an older Coleman unit while the Kodiak had a no name unit probably from China.
